Tombstone Tuesday – Mt. Auburn Cemetery

The Simon Wilkinson Family Plot
Mt. Auburn Cemetery,
Cambridge, Massachusetts

Stones cold to the touch
Like a hand after
The soul has left a body

Cold wind on your
Cheek as you pass
Through the quiet

Why is everything about death so cold?

A pocket of warmth
And a stumble into the sun.
A ray of light hits your face

And then you realize
You probably weren’t
As cold as you thought.
